John Carroll University’s momentum continued today with the announcement that the institution will join the North Coast Athletic Conference (NCAC) beginning in Fall 2025. The athletic conference change is the latest step in John Carroll’s three-year, $100 million strategy to bolster the student experience, grow the academic portfolio, enhance the campus, and expand the institution’s reach.
Membership in the prestigious North Coast Athletic Conference aligns John Carroll’s nationally competitive athletic programs with other liberal arts colleges and universities that share a focus on rigorous academics and high-level athletics. The Blue Streaks will become the 10th member of the conference which includes institutions from Ohio and Indiana that serve students well beyond the Midwest.
“Athletics has been an integral part of the student experience at John Carroll for more than a century and we are pleased to accept the invitation to join the NCAC during a pivotal time in our history,” said President Al Miciak.
